About the Course
The one-day Aviation Fuels training session is intended to be an introduction to the three-day course usually taught in other scenarios. IT IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR THE THREE-DAY COURSE TAUGHT IN VARIOUS LOCATIONS OR IN ON-SITE TRAINING BUT WILL BE A GOOD INTRODUCTORY SESSION. For specific employees, ASTM suggests that key personnel attend the three-day course. This applies to all who work in the aviation field because only then can you have the necessary redundancy that is required, even if you are in manufacturing, distribution, testing, purchasing, into plane agents or aviation customers using the fuels.
Topics Include

Subjects to be discussed include:

  • A general review of tests used at the manufacturing location for Aviation Turbine Fuel and Aviation Gasoline.
  • A brief discussion on engine parameters which can be affected by aviation fuel properties.
  • Key properties that affect the performance of aviation fuels.
  • A general summary of the downstream testing (beyond the point of manufacture) to the airplane. Aviation fuels are tested extensively in the points downstream of manufacture and this session will only summarize those.
  • A brief description of field quality assurance measures used by the aviation industry.
  • The instructor for this course have had extensive experience in the aviation fuels industry.
  • Fee Includes

    • All referenced ASTM standards and course notes
    • Lunch and coffee breaks
    • Course Completion Certificate with .7 Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

    About the Instructor
    Roger Gaughan, Aviation Fuels Consultant

    Roger is the Vice Chair of the ASTM Spark and Compression Ignition Aviation Fuels Subcommittee (ASTM D02.J02) and the Chair of the CRC Aviation Gasoline and Piston Fuels Group. He has been involved in aviation fuels research and provided technical assistance for over 30 years. He recently retired from ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company where he carried out projects related to jet fuel and aviation gasoline.

    His wide range of research interests included jet fuel lubricity properties, mechanistic studies of filter coalescence, detection and quantification of microbial contamination in jet fuel & aviation gasolines, development of analytical methods and techniques for identification of contaminants, development of ExxonMobil's unleaded aviation gasoline, combustion research and discerning the impact of crude oil quality on aviation fuels. He was routinely responsible for conducting inspections from refinery to airport, ensuring aviation fuel quality throughout the distribution system. Resolving product quality issues in the field and conducting inspections continue to be a focus in his consulting activities.

    About ASTM and Sponsoring Committee

    ASTM is one of the world's largest voluntary standards development organizations. ASTM standards have grown to be among the world's most widely used and accepted documents. The 82-volume Annual Book of ASTM Standards (available online, print, and CD-ROM) contain over 12,000 standards written by 34,000 members on our 140 technical committees. The standard referenced in this course was developed by Committee D02 on Petroleum Products, Liquid Fuels, and Lubricants. For information on Committee D02, contact Alyson Fick at (610) 832-9710 or go to our D02 technical committee page.

    How Learning Will Be Assessed

    Learning will be assessed through discussions. Participants are expected to ask questions if an issue is unclear to them.
